The AA has announced its latest Rosette Award winners, which showcase the restaurants that offer the highest culinary standard in the UK and Ireland.
Two restaurants have been given four AA Rosettes, while a further 11 have been awarded three AA Rosettes.
New 3 and 4 rosettes
Restaurants now with four AA Rosettes are Alchemilla (Nottingham) and The Lady Helen Restaurant in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny.
Those awarded three AA Rosettes include Jason Atherton’s No. 5 Social (London), Paschoe House (Crediton, Devon) and Edinbane Lodge (Edinbane, Isle of Skye).
Three AA Rosettes mean that the AA team consider the establishments to be "outstanding restaurants achieving standards that demand national recognition well beyond their local area."
Those awarded four AA Rosettes are among the top restaurants in the country.
Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said, “We are thrilled to recognise hotels and restaurants achieving such high standards of culinary excellence.
"Congratulations to these establishments and their staff, who demonstrate the variety and high quality of dining experiences offered across the UK and Ireland.”

About the AA Rosettes
The AA has awarded Rosettes to restaurants since 1956, with the top award of five rosettes introduced in 1991.
The multi rosettes are awarded bi-annually in January and September, with success determined by one or more visits by an AA inspector to a hotel or restaurant.
